NOTE: This bibliography is in an early stage and has largely been thrown together at the last moment after four months of work on this website from two major sources: Hall and Koerner. Two exceptions are Professor Chao's Chinese Grammar and the I.A. Richards volume. The author knows of other works that ought to be included but cannot immediately put his hands on them. Improvements and additions will definitely be made over the months and years to come, and all suggestions for other appropriate material are earnestly sought and most truly welome.
